Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Properties

There is no other state like Texas, we are different, we talk different, and have sayings unique to Texas.

I love seeing the Texas flag waving in the breeze under the American flag, I am proud of being an American, and of  being a Texan.  There is no other state that can compare with Texas, and people move here for the milder weather.  They love the milder winters, but take some time to get used to the summer heat.

They love close to the big City of Dallas, but like living out of the hustle and bustle of the big city.  I live in Rockwall, which is "just a view away from Dallas", and I can see the distant Dallas skyline across the shores of Lake Ray Hubbard.

There are always fun things to do; shopping, dining, and entertainment.  Community theaters provide excellent musicals, the last of ones I saw was "The King and I, and 1776".

City Parks are great places to relax, have a picnic, and watch movies during certain seasons.

The Harbor on the waterfront of Lake Ray Hubbard is the destination for all things fun, movies, concerts, sporting events dining, and there is a five star hotel, the Bella Hilton, where you can stay overnight or as long as you like.

You can dock your boat at The Harbor, and go home, it's the best of all curb service! I live within walking distance of The Harbor, and can watch the fireworks from my patio.

Hi Barbara,

I really like your area around Lake Ray Hubbard. And the Plano area as well. Dallas is a little too big for me as a place to call home. I like the smaller towns.

Have a great day in Rockwall Texas.

Best, Clint McKie

Hello Barbara,

Great post!  I am a proud Texas transplant, you know the saying - "I wasn't born in Texas, but I got here as fast as I could"!

Good morning Clint, I love to live near Dallas, but would never want to live there.

Lisa, I love what you said, "I wasn't born in Texas, but I got there as quick as you could".  It is my belief that no other state compares to Texas!

Richard, I hear you loud and clear - I was also born in Texas, and live here until I die!

It certainly pays to love the state you live in and yours love for Texas is contagious.
